Conan the Barbarian wasn’t as barbaric as I was hoping it would be. Other than a few violent scenes, the film was pretty tame and at times numbingly boring. Two scenes that did stick out to me in particular as being good, were: The Giant Snake scene (I loved the special effects for that part, so gory!), and the attack on the Harem. I really liked the music throughout the film and some of the scenery was breathtaking which gave the movie a very epic feel, but as far as pure entertainment? This movie was just fine, definitely not good. You will get some good laughs from Arnold’s sappy acting. Oh and him randomly punching a camel… what was that about?
